Focus stacking (2) (2)


Alternative: if you can live with 14 MP you can also use a Nikon 1 V2: that camera has about three stops more DOF compared to a D800. Often you don't have to make focus stacks, or at least you can do with less exposures. Be sure to overexpose about on stop with this camera and to compensate for that while processing the RAWs.

Again: forget the BS you read about diffraction, you can use f/5.6 with that camera.

Picture data: Nikon D800E 1/100s f/8 70-200/2.8 VRII @ 85 mm. (No Focus stack, first picture of stack, see part 1 for result of stack.)
